Writing Wednesday: A Visit with Karilyn Bentley!

 For today's blog, I have a special treat - Karilyn Bentley is here to talk about her new release DEVIL TAKE ME, which is part of her Demon Huntress series. For those of you paying attention, yes, this series is on my reading #obsession list, so Yea! 

Welcome Karilyn!

Thank you for letting me blog with you today, Katie! I'm excited to announce the release of Devil Take Me, the fourth book in the urban fantasy series, Demon Huntress. Gin Crawford is back for another adventure.

The last book, Demon Cursed, left Gin depressed and in a funk. Devil Take Me starts the morning after Demon Cursed ends. Gin is faced with a demon rampaging through Dallas. In order to stop the demon, she needs help from her guardian mage, Aidan Smythe. The only problem is Smythe refuses to talk to her. She needs to patch her relationship with him in order to stop the demon.

This book took me forever to write. We moved out of state, my dad was dying so there were a lot of trips back home, and all the stress sucked out my creativity. But it came back about halfway through the book and now I've completed the fifth and final book. Hopefully that one will be out later this year. Check out the blurb and the official excerpt below then come on back to Katie's blog on Friday for different excerpt.

And while you're at it, let me know your favorite thing to do when the weather turns cold. Mine is curl up in front of the fireplace with a book. One lucky commenter will win a mobi copy of Devil Take Me. Be sure to leave your email address in the comments if you want to enter.

Happy Reading!

About the Book:

A demon attack…

Reeling from a personal tragedy and abandoned by all she loves, the world's newest demon huntress, Gin Crawford, sinks into a deep despair. She’s forced back to reality by news of a large number of people committing suicide, all on the same night. Suspecting demon involvement, Gin must work with her sexy but estranged mentor Aidan Smythe to track who, or what, is behind the deaths.

Leads to a new discovery…

As they come closer to finding the culprit, they realize their employer, the Agency, is hiding its own secret, one which threatens Gin's very existence. New discoveries reveal that even those dedicated to eradicating evil can be bought. Can Gin and Smythe forgive each other and work together or will they fall under the demon's thrall?


     A vision of an auburn-haired man dressed in dark trousers and a gray button-down, appears in my head. He sits on my closed toilet lid, watching me sleep in the full tub, watching as my head slides closer to the waterline.
     It must be a dream. How else can I be asleep and still see the bathroom, my sleeping self and the man? A dream. Only a dream. His voice is nothing more than my imaginings.
     And yet I feel the need to answer. To deny his words.
     I’m not listening to you. I make an effort to rebuke the voice, refusing to take what it offers, refusing to admit its enticing pull.
     Oh, but you are. He leans forward, resting his elbows on his knees, his gaze firmly affixed to my face. You contemplate my words. You seek the rest only I can give.
     Yeah, right. Not buying it, buster. Although I’m starting to want what he offers. I’ll never admit it to Mystery Man. What can a figment of my imagination really do?
     I am not a figment. He smiles, his lips pulling away from straight, white teeth.
     Despite the warm water, a chill runs down my spine. He holds out his hand.
     Come. Take my hand. Rest. Leave your problems behind.
